God is Just Not Fair

I always have the intention of sharing more about some of the books I read. But, then just never seem to get around to it.

But, I just finished a book that was such a blessing to me, I can't help but share. I wrote Jennifer when I finished it and told her how I just didn't want it to end. Sitting down with this book was like sitting down with an old friend each night. A friend who understands just how I feel (when many others don't seem to understand) and offered such timely words of encouragement and truth.

I'd like to share with you some of the passages that I've underscored.
However, I've highlighted half of the book. 

But, I guess maybe I could narrow it down to a couple and let you discover the rest, should you sit down with this book yourself one day.

For starters... When you first see this book's title, you see "God is Just Not Fair". But, once you begin to read, you begin to see it more as "God is JUST; Not Fair". Big difference. One may be your current outlook. The other is rock solid truth.

   "When you're really hurting, think about what you really deserved and thank Him for what you got instead. You got grace; you got peace; and you got unconditional love that will carry you through any sorrow. And both you and I got the best gift of all - fairest Lord Jesus."

It all boils down to the sovereignty of God. 
And trusting His omnipotent hand.
Even when it doesn't make sense.

   "Because He is perfect, holy and immutable, you can trust Him. Even if you don't understand His ways, you can trust His character."

So much more I could share about this wonderful book. 
But, I hope, if like me, you find yourself in a place with more questions than answers, that you will consider sitting down with Jennifer and allowing her to speak truth and encouragement over you, through these pages.
